‘We need a little good news today’

Published: Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

In this weekend’s paper, a whole page was taken to print about a nudist colony in Erie, and in Monday’s paper, we got to read about Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) “working together for social change.”

Yet when we hold revivals, “Taking Back the City,” for the past 4 years, Sauk Valley Media won’t print our articles or print pictures.

We have asked them to send a reporter to our events for the past 4 years, yet none have come.

As Anne Murray said, we need a little good news today.

Note to readers: A short article, “Revival coming to Rock Falls park,” appeared in Saturday’s paper. The revival will take place from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday at Veterans Memorial Park, Fifth Street and Galt Avenue, Rock Falls. Among the speakers are Daniel Gibbs and Hector Palacios.
